Dear Mr. Seymour,
I have recently learned of your need for a Sales Specialist, and I was motivated to submit my resume for consideration. As a Sales Specialist with four years of experience in B2B sales with Dunlap Digital, I am certain I have the qualifications necessary to thrive in your organization.
My professional experience includes prospecting for small to mid-size businesses in need of digital marketing services and then pitching them the services of Dunlap Digital based on their specific marketing needs. Based on this experience, I am confident I can help Zinc Digital achieve their goals.
The following is a list of my most relevant skills and qualifications.
Used Salesforce to successfully document and analyze each prospect’s journey through the sales process
Earned recognition for highest grossing Sales Specialist in 2015
Helped write and implement new service sales scripts
Trained new sales specialists on features and benefits of each service
I think what truly separates me from the other candidates is I have a natural gift of gab. I love talking to people, and this has helped me build a successful career in sales. If you would like to talk more in an interview, then please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your consideration.
